Satchels of Caring

On August 17th, 2013 the IIDA Pittsburgh City Center chapter presented Product Runway-World Traveler. Interior Designers in the Pittsburgh area, including Quad3’s Jessica Nikolakopoulos, teamed up with manufacturer’s representatives to create a one-of-a-kind garment out of architectural materials to sashay down the runway coinciding with the event’s theme.  The event was held at the New Hazlett Theater in Pittsburgh’s historic North Side.  With a crowd of 250 on hand, the models took to the runway with custom remixed songs and presentations to display their garments and matching satchels to the three judges; one being supermodel, Cheryl Tiegs.

All of the proceeds from the event went directly to Satchels of Caring charity, including the auctioned satchels that each team created to match their outfits.  Satchels of Caring is a local Pittsburgh charity, founded by an interior designer, that has a team of volunteers who create handmade satchels filled with inspirational materials for women diagnosed with cancer and are receiving chemotherapy treatments.

The event proved to be a huge success, and IIDA cannot wait for next year!
